We see a future where women contribute equally to the positive transformation of society through their role in the workplace.

Fitted for Work

Fitted for Work welcomes all women (trans and cis), including non-binary and gender non-conforming people and all those who identify as women, who have experienced disadvantage and are seeking employment. We believe self-definition is at the discretion of the individual.


Fitted for Work is an innovative organisation and the first of its kind in Australia. Our vision is economic independence and empowerment for women and our mission is to help women experiencing disadvantage get work, keep work and navigate their world of work. We do this by developing each woman’s confidence and self-esteem as well as her skills and knowledge to obtain work through a suite of tailored pre-and post-employment programs and services that are delivered nationally.

We focus specifically on helping women gain employment because work provides financial security as well as a sense of social connectedness, dignity and pride.

We believe that when a woman is fitted for work, she is fitted for life.

National Operations and Melbourne Client Services has moved to 513 Bridge Road Richmond


Please note Fitted for Work’s staff are currently working remotely and our office is closed to the public until further notice. We are continuing to assist all clients through virtual service delivery.

If work and economic independence feel out of reach, we’re here to help you.
